Hilda Faye Nelson

December 5, 1953 ~ July 21, 2020 (age 66)


GOD gave her life…

Hilda Faye Nelson was given life on December 5, 1953. She was born to the late Clara Mae Campbell and John Lee Fantroy.

A time to live…

Hilda lived a vivid life; she showed great passion and love to her family, friends, church members, and Pascagoula Negro/Carver High School Alumni Association. Everyone she encountered was treated as FAMILY “COUSIN” to be exact. It didn’t matter how far down the bloodline, her family was her family and she would proudly let it be known by the title one would be given… BIG COUSIN, RICH COUSIN, FAVORITE COUSIN, LOW-DOWN COUSIN, LIL COUSIN, the list could go on and on.  She also titled her nieces and nephews in the same manner.

Hilda became a faithful and loyal member of Christian Love Church of the Living God in December 2000 under the leadership of D.A. Graham. She served on the Alternate Usher’s Board. She was that usher that would pray for you, comfort you, and by the time it was all over, you would become her usher. She would simply say, “Baby I’m so sorry, but the spirit got a hold to me too,” and then proceed to give you something sweet from her treat bag.

Hilda was a proud active member of Pascagoula Negro/Carver High School Alumni Association. She assisted on the decoration committee as well as spearheaded the talent shows acts for the CLASS OF 1971 during the All Class Reunion events.
